Learning Journeys

Today, Sacred Heart will hold the Term 3 Learning Journeys, with many families visiting their children’s classrooms and the Specialist Rooms to view the work they have been doing this term and participate in engaging activities. We take this opportunity to thank all staff who have devoted many hours to ensure a memorable evening for their students and their families.


Confirmation Mass

Last Saturday, the Candidates for the Sacrament of Confirmation celebrated this special Sacrament with their families and the Sacred Heart Parish. We would like to thank, the very reverend Fr Whitely, Fr Mark and Deacon Aaron Peters for leading the mass; Mrs Saraceni, Miss Steph Ryan and all of the Catholic Guy team for preparing a very memorable mass and celebration of the Sacrament of Confirmation. The Year Six students celebrated back at school with a special cake. Congratulations to all candidates!

Year 4 Convict Day and Assembly (I will email photos direct – this is only taking place tomorrow)

Today the Year 4 class had a great Historical day. Starting in the morning, they arrived by ship singing “Botany Bay”. They then told us some stories about Moondyne Joe from Fremantle Prison. After, they demonstrated their bush dancing skills to the song, “Click go the Shears”. But this was just the beginning of the day. The Year 4 Convicts, scrubbed the deck, made damper, played marbles and built shelters. They have lived a Day in the Life of a Convict. Thank you to Mrs Wyre, Mrs Adair and Mrs Hogan for a fantastic assembly and awesome Convict Day.

Sport News

This year our Faction Carnival comprised of two days, a Field Day and a Track Day. The points earned across both days were added together. In the end, after a close fought battle, Taylor was our winning faction for 2019! It was wonderful to see all of the children trying their best to earn points for their faction. All of the students from Year One to Year Six must be congratulated for their efforts, team work and cheering. A special mention must go out to Hewitt who, through their cheering and sportsmanship, earned the Spirit Award for 2019.
